Collaborative Divorce is a voluntary dispute resolution process that is a structured, targeted, and efficient way of addressing family law disputes without going to court. In a Collaborative case, a team of Collaboratively-trained professionals works cooperatively and respectfully to help the two of you reach a meaningful and lasting agreement. The process is designed to allow both parties to feel supported and guided as they explore the best solutions for their family in a safe space.
Working together with your Collaboratively-trained attorneys and financial professionals, Co-Parenting Solutions, LLC serves on the team as a Divorce Coach, Case Manager and Child Specialist, guiding and supporting divorcing spouses to manage anxiety, conflict and other normal, divorce-related emotions so that communication can remain effective and respectful throughout the process. As part of our role, we will assist you in developing a Parenting Time Agreement that brings the voice, needs, and perspective of the children into the process.
Overall, the Collaborative Process allows parties to:
- Negotiate a mutually acceptable resolution without having courts decide issues
- Maintain open communication and information sharing
- Create shared solutions acknowledging the highest priorities of all
